Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for March 21st
3/21/1965 (52 years ago today) - It was like this almost all the time...: "I Want To Hold Your Hand" has spent seven weeks in a row at the No. 1 spot on the singles chart, but today it finally gets replaced...by "She Loves You"(!), which stays at the top for the next two weeks. Them Beatle boys, they make good records...
3/21/1991 (26 years ago today) - Jeff Beck. Eric Clapton. Robert Cray. Yngwie Malmsteen. Stevie Ray Vaughan. Ritchie Blackmore. David Gilmour. George Harrison. Jimi Hendrix. They all played Fender guitars and on this date, we salute the inventor of the Telecaster and Stratocaster, the truly legendary Leo Fender, who passed away from Parkinson's disease at age 81. Strange but true: he never learned to play the instruments that he made a career of building!
3/21/1950 - Happy Birthday to ex-Supertramp singer-songwriter-guitarist Roger Hodgson, 67 years old today. That's Roger singing the lead vocals on Supertramp classics "The Logical Song", "Give A Little Bit", "Breakfast In America", "Take The Long Way Home", "Sister Moonshine", "Even In The Quietest Moments", "Babaji"...well, you get it. Absolutely worth checking out: if you can find Roger's 1984 solo album "In The Eye Of The Storm", you won't be disappointed.
